Just back from supper club . . . the pear cake was a big success!  Instead of the brown sugar cream I just did a plain lightly sweetened whipped heavy cream with the addition of 1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger to a bit over 3/4 cup cream.  It was subtle but good.  The cake was nice without being overly sweet, just right after an indulgent meal that featured:

Seven Layer Dip
Salad
Rolls
Rolled Chicken Breast
Spinach Casserole
Zucchini and Tomato Casserole
Caribbean Rice
Three Bean Salad
Wine
And of course . . .
Pear Cake and coffee

A good time was had by all, and I think I've officially made up my 10K calorie deficit.  Back on the straight and narrow soon.  Really.

When I saw Renea this weekend, she said she was impressed with your asparagus entry. Apparently, she and Mark had been discussing proper preparation of asparagus the night before you gave such great directions!
